News: Sussex Living November

Posted on 4th November 2016

Monthly update Sussex Living November 2016



What with a chill in the air and the clocks now changed, it’s time to start snuggling down for winter.


We have been really taken with the Danish concept of hygge that seems to be taking the world by storm at the moment, and from page 34 Lisa de Silva discovers how to make your home into a hygge haven. It’s such a neat concept, and one we could all easily enjoy this winter; just try taking a few minutes out of your busy day to savour a decadent hot chocolate (with marshmallows and cream of course) for a truly indulgent, hygge moment – yes please!


We are celebrating two anniversaries in our November issue for our local community. Firstly the Market Place Shopping Centre in Burgess Hill is turning 25 this year (full story from page 12) and also the Mid Downs Radio, who keep the patients of the Princess Royal Hospital in Haywards Heath entertained is celebrating turning 40 (p. 8). Congratulations to both of you!


The Sussex Living team enjoyed our own night of celebrations recently at the 6th annual Child Of Sussex Awards. We all had a wonderful time on this special night, which champions the outstanding children we have in Sussex with award categories including Best Brother, Sister or Friend Award, Sporting Star and The Gold Award. Huge congratulations to all the winners and nominees, including Isabel Galvao-King for the Community Award, Sebastian Stevens for the Gold Award and Abi Smith for the Best Friend Award. We hope all of you and your families are very proud of what you have achieved (for full details and winners visit


And finally, look out for your favourite Sussex Living Magazine in Lewes and Worthing as we are now distributing in these places! Have a wonderful month everyone!

"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."

The Hon Nicholas Soames MP

"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "

""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""

"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
